What you'll do
Famous as the spot in so many film and shows, bohemian Venice Beach is the perfect setting to lend a hand to dogs in need and get them seen by the public for adoptions! Start off with a leisurely stroll through the canals, as we tell you about the dogs and local residences. You will cross over charming pedestrian bridges and have great opportunity for fab photos with you and the doggos! Then our pack will make our way to the famous Venice Beach sign and the boardwalk! We'll see the amazing "Touch of Venice" mural, then stroll by the skate park on the beach, muscle beach and a number of other sights! Then we'll slow down again for a charming walk on the other side of the canals, with loads of great picture spots. We'll give the dogs treats for their good work with us, and make our way back to where we started. At the end you will receive a pamphlet with even more "Hidden Venice" you can explore on your own, especially in areas where it might be to "car busy" for us to walk the dogs. NOTE: We run one of the top Experiences on Airbnb: Hike Runyon Canyon with a rescue dog! See that Experience and our 1000+ 5-star reviews: https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/82265 This is a leisurely walk, with lots of photo stops, on level terrain, suitable for almost everyone.
